Whites MXT Find 1893 Worlds Fair Medallion

Hi My name is Jay, I've been detecting about fifteen years Just thought you would like to see this nice 1893 worlds fair medallion I found, it appears to be made of lead , I don't know much else about it or value if any. But I sure was excited to see that come out of the ground.It's huge as you can see in the pic compared to the rest of my haul. I found it using my Whites MXT with the 5" excelarator coil, found in London, Ontario Canada, about 4" deep. the ground is infested with well rusted iron and a lot of nails I usually get 2-3 in in every scoop of my digger. the MXT with 5" excelarator coil is great at separating trash. Keep up the good work ...I plan on getting a 14- 18 in coil soon.

Cheers , Jayson Gerdes, London Ontario Canada
